Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age. Please consider clicking an ad to help my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

Famitsu's most wanted leaves the Vita way behind

A quiet week for the Vita in Famitsu with only two games up for review. First is Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy (now called Operation Babel in Japan, a sequel of sorts to the huge selling Demon Gaze, which is also confirmed for a western release) grabbing a score of 8/8/8/7.

The rather non-gripping sounding Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend – Blessing Flowers manages (video) a 8/7/7/7 while the highly dodgy-sounding White Robe Love Addiction manages 8/8/7/6.

Famitsu's latest most wanted list shows the predicament the Vita is in, new model on the way or not. With no big-name games (spin-offs aside) coming, it is now struggling to create much interest among Japanese gamers, even though the Vita has a decent number of games coming out for it.

What the platform needs is one of the Japanese staple big-hitters, and no one seems to be ready to bite for a console that's approaching 4 million sales in the country. Only one of those games, and you know who I mean by that, will kick Vita sales up the arse.
